Brothers won’t speak to each other

Dear Annie: I have two sons, both married with children, living in two different states. For several years, my older son “John” has refused to talk to his brother, “Teddy.” I don’t know why, except that John’s wife initiated it. My husband and my sons and their families were at a wedding a few years […]

Had enough of his addiction

Dear Annie: Not long ago, I discovered that my husband of 25 years was living a completely secret life. This life included pornography, voyeurism, physical affairs, emotional affairs and flirtations with hundreds of women he met through his sales job. Many of the women thought he was going to divorce me, even though he was […]

The math seems fishy here

As I write this on Father’s Day, I remain perplexed by a common thread that runs from Ellen Cohen’s June 11 guest opinion column to Beverly Lozano’s June 17 letter. Referring to a recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, both stated that black fathers are more than twice as likely as white […]

Davis Little League weighs in on sports park vision

By Kelly McCrory Last month, Davis Enterprise staffer Bruce Gallaudet wrote about the effort to bring a new sports park to Davis to alleviate the pressure on our youth sports fields. The Davis Youth Softball Association, AYSO and Davis Little League are all in situations where current facilities significantly lag behind our needs. Little League is […]

Now they know too much

Dear Annie: My father-in-law “Ron” is having an affair. At first I was not sure, but now I have proof, and my husband has seen his father with this woman, as well. Even my in-laws have told us that they only coexist with one another. I am not sure if my husband’s mother knows of […]

And then it all changed …

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for nine years. When we were dating, we had the best conversations. He would remember events that happened in my life and would follow up with questions later. He talked about things going on in his life and would include me in the conversation, asking my […]

It seems like just a year ago …

Dear Annie: Is it unorthodox to have a one-year anniversary party? A friend of mine was married last summer. By November, she had created a save-the-date on Facebook for a one-year anniversary party. “Leona” invited everyone who had been on the wedding list, whether they attended or not. So far, only a handful have responded. […]

So that’s where it’s going

Dear Annie: My father is starting to have trouble managing his banking. He has a decent fixed income, but somehow, he is now living from one check to the next and he’s getting costly overdrawn notices. I have started to write out his bills, and I try to keep his checkbook balanced. Last week, I […]

Secret is ruining marriage

Dear Annie: I am 50 years old. After 10 years of marriage, I feel I must tell my wife of the reason for my declining ability to perform in the bedroom. After three months without intimacy, she requested that I see a doctor and I agreed to do so. However, what she doesn’t know is […]

Voodoo economics, Jeb! style

  On Monday, Jeb Bush — or I guess that’s Jeb!, since he seems to have decided to replace his family name with a punctuation mark — finally made his campaign for the White House official, and gave us a first view of his policy goals. First, he says that if elected he would double […]

Time for leadership on Nishi

By Stephen M. Wheeler For six months I and others have been meeting with council members, city planning staff, and the landowner to encourage a development plan for the Nishi Gateway site that is truly sustainable and will enhance the city’s reputation as a cutting-edge green community. Many of the pieces of such a plan […]

This plot is getting old

Dear Annie: For the past 20 years, a good female friend of mine and I have gotten together every few weeks for walks, lunch and movies. The problem is, whenever we go to the movies, she always picks. I’m a pretty easygoing person and will see whatever she wants because even if the movie doesn’t […]

Death on the doorstep

Dear Annie: Recently, I insisted a dear friend move into my home so I could help him after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After a lengthy surgery, doctors managed to remove it. Two weeks later, I took him to a rustic cabin retreat so he could rest. The morning we were to leave […]
